SR 70 Drivers- Stark Warning if Traveling thru the Canyon


As the long holiday weekend arrives, here are your Hwy 70 updates: the state route is currently open from the Greenville Wye to Jarbo Gap.

Caltrans – District 2 has one-way traffic control in place at multiple locations to get you through. Yet officials offer a stark warning that if you do decide to travel through the canyon, be aware of falling rocks, trees, debris, landslides, and possibly even animals.

A series of storms has arrived, with the first on its way out, but following a break in the weather today and tomorrow, you can prepare for similar challenging driving conditions throughout the region with additional rounds of heavy rain, gusty winds, and lowering snow levels.
